, many decades. this is something extremely well received. >> the politics of this, republicans as john mccain was the first to say yesterday, republicans have to deal with the facts of life here. now, ironically, if john mccain and lindsey graham and others had joined with george w. bush, this could have been done in 2007. >> right. what john mccain sort of didn't say but implied was what has changed about this issue? it's simple. november 6th, the 2012 general election. the overall share of republican votes was -- people that voted for republicans is white. 11% nonwhite. it is -- that is an untenable -- we saw in 2012, and it will only get worse if they continue to lose 70% plus of the hispanic vote. that's what's changed here. republicans broadly recognize it. the question is jose touched on it, the path to citizenship. that is the piece that is always the one that conservative republicans said we will not do this. we are validating illegal behavior, no matter what we do. now there are some republicans on board. marco rubio, john mccain, lindsey graham saying, look, this has to be in
. chuck schumer, john mccain, dick durbin, marco rubio and bob menendez will discuss the plan. we'll bring it to you live. our first read team notes this is the first time senator mccain signed on to a priority of president obama. he takes the vision on the road to las vegas. but within the last hour, white house press secretary jay carney confirmed the president would not unveil specific legislation. the plan unveiled today would be the first major immigration overhaul proposal in six years but one border state democrat congressman castro of texas say that is the devil is in the details. >> we've got to make sure that those measurements, when we have determined that we have secured the border, that those measurements are objective. otherwise you will have fights down the road where folks are saying, well, wait a minute. let's not move on to the second phase of the bill because we have not first completed the first phase. >> besides border security, there's guest workers and employer verification and a path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in this country. let's bring i
. the other story we wanted to mention is that john mccain's vice presidential pick of four years ago, sarah palin, has also been sent into the wilderness after fox news failed to reknew her contract. for the sake of clarity, these stories are not connected in any way whatsoever. thanks so much for watching. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >>> tea for two. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this, barack and hillary, good-bye or hello? was last night's dual appearance on 60 minutes a fond good-bye or a statement? was it the president's way of saying i know which way the wind is blowing? was it barack obama saying i want a democrat to replace me? hillary clinton is the best bet to do it, i'm ready for this to happen? it's powerful stuff any way you listen to it. i think secretary clinton will run for president. i don't see how she can walk away from it. she's the one woman right now in the picture who could win the president next time. not only that, i think she's the favorite of either gender and either party to win
, john and patsy ramsey. but the district attorney refused to sign that indictment, believing he could not prove the case beyond reasonable doubt. >>> u.s. marshals say he's a dangerous career criminal who keeps escaping from jail. he was in the wayne county jail in detroit for six days before he walked out last week. before that escape, he left a jail in phoenix the very same way. >>> and turning to sports this morning, the pro bowl game was played under the sunny skies of hawaii yesterday. but was it for the last time? >> let's hope so. it wasn't even close. the nfc trounced the afc. but both teams did seem to be trying out there. the game is a sort of side show to the super bowl. and commissioner roger goodell has questioned whether it should return. >>> and the 49ers arrived in new orleans last night, accompanied by their families. they'll have a week to practice there and get ready for sunday's big game. it's san francisco's first super bowl appearance in 18 years. and coach jim harbaugh says the team is super happy to be there. >> the ravens travel to the big easy today after fin
also doesn't have a huge deep base. >> i agree with joy. i think john kerry is going to do hillary clinton a favor of keeping those people around. >> some. >> at least for a while. >> who knows. i don't know. >> at least for a decent serval. >> it's a fascinating discussion. we love it because as long as hillary is in the news, the news is exciting. i think hillary clinton is going to run for president and i think joy agrees with me. i think howard probably agrees to me but keeping his powder dry. he's just smiling now. i don't see why anybody walks away from the presidency. then again i don't think we can predict the future. >> i think it's about obama managing the next few years on his own. he wants to keep her in view and on a friendly basis. >> keep your enemies in front of you even if it's not an enemy. either it was a great actor performance or something really important. probably a combination. thank you, howard, my friend who shares in the skepticism which makes this a beautiful business. joy reid, you're great. i'm known for saying that, you're great. >>> op wednesday hill
ramsey. the case remains unsolved and now reports say a grand jury had voted to indict john and patsy ramsey. but the district attorney refused to sign the indictment, believing he could not prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt. an attorney for john ramsey says indicting him would have been a gross miscarriage of justice. >> this case was so huge back then. fascinating to learn that both parents were indicted. the legal question is, did the d.a. have a legal obligation to sign it under colorado law? because some analysts are saying he should have signed it and moved to dismiss the charges in open court. >> that's remarkable. i don't think i've ever heard of that. typically, what d.a.'s want to do is they want the grand jury to decide. because then the decision is not on you as the district attorney, it's on the people of the grand jury. it is like the tribe has spoken. so if you have a grand jury indictment, then even if you don't prove your case, you still have done your job. it's remarkable to me that you would get that indictment yet not sign it. >> it was such a high profile c

actually indicted john and patsy ramsey in connection with the death. why did the prosecutor decline to try that case? >>> we begin with that tragic nightclub fire in brazil. mike taibbi has the latest. mike, good morning. >> good morning, savannah. it has been a dead lly combinatn in the past, a nightclub filled with revelers and pyrotechnics and few too ways to escape led to panic. in santa maria, it was packed with its usual saturday nightclub when, at 2:00 in the morning, disaster. a swift-moving fire filled the ground-floor club with thick smoke. witnesses said club security initially blocked several emergency exits, thinking p patrons were leaving without paying and that left only a few ways out. in the ensuing panic, some victims were trampled. most died of smoke inhalation. many witnesses told police this fire was triggered by the use of some incindiery device on stage. >> the band used fireworks and as we heard it was usual for this presentation but the ceiling was too short. >> reporter: some club goers who did make it out joined firemen and onlookers in their attempt to open new
kristol or john hatoritz. also scott walker who is doing really well up in wisconsin. and all the republicans got up there, and they were saying the same thing. we've got to stop being the stupid party. we've been saying here for six months, we have got to -- and john, i thought, had one of the best points, that we have stifled debate. the conservative movement has stifled debate. and if you go out and you dare to stand out in a crowd, whether it's on taxes or regulations or in the past on immigration, you were completely shunned from the party. finally there's an understanding we've got to grow the party. what we've been saying for quite frankly for years and getting attacked, we want colin powell on our side. we want moderate republicans on our side. if we're going to be the majority party again, we've got to spend the party. >> are you saying they're pushing her out of the spotlight as part of making the stupid party less stupid? >> what i'm saying is that sarah palin represented a time and place in american politics. and not 2008 so much as 2010. and that time is passing u
of making the time right for senator john mccain and other republicans means there has to be some proposal in place to implement tighter border security. the measure would include using more surveillance equipment plus adding more agents along the border between the united states and canada and especially mexico. president obama is scheduled to visit las vegas on tuesday after his time in vegas. the president will redouble their efforts working to fix the immigration this year. >>> time for a look at who's talking. we are hearing from president obama and hillary clinton. they sat together during a 60 minutes interview. here's what they had to say on the attack on benghazi. >> obviously i deeply regret what happened many times. i knew chrstevens it was a grea loss to lose him and three other great americans. but i also have looked back and tried to figure out what we could do so that nobody in so far as possible would never be in that situation again. as the review board pointed out we fixed responsibility appropriately and we are taking steps to implement that. but we also live in dangerou
party and of cuban descent. he will be influential. john mccain campaigned against george w. bush in 2000, a long time advocate of immigration reform is big advocate of this. democrats almost every case on this bipartisan committee as well as in the senate are expected to follow the president's lead whatever he outlines tomorrow many they're on board with that agenda. the big question and stumbling block has been for decades is border security. how do you define it, how do you support it? this includes the use of drones, technology, all kinds of electronic surveillance and et cetera, critics say there is not enough. you need a fence and more troops on the border. how that gets legislated and sorted out we her from the president and house republicans will be influence in the outcome. house republicans want to be very much a part of passing this legislation this time. jamie: i would love to see our troops continue to work down there. that would be so helpful. carl, thanks. jon: for more on the immigration reform plan let's bring if karl rove, former chief visor and deputy chief of s
department, senator john kerry, faced questions before the senate foreign relations committee this week. during his opening remarks, he was interrupted by an anti-war protester, which triggered this personal reply. >> when i first came to washington to testify, i obviously was testifying as part of a group of people who came here to have their voices heard. and that is above all what this place is about. >> nearly 42 years ago, it was kerry who aimed to have his voice heard when he first appeared on capitol hill not as a politician but as a protester. the year, 1971. he was part of an anti-war group testifying before that very committee. but it was days before on this program where kerry gave the country its first look at a future leader. and it's this morning's "meet the press" moment. >> we are down here to demand that those who call themselves the most committed of all in this country, namely the senators and congressmen, who have been talking peace for the past few years, that these men exercise their responsibility granted them by the constitution of this country to end this war. >
senator john mccain, also a member of the immigration 8, talked about what this bipartisan plan means and also what it means for the gop. take a listen. >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote, which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons. >> alice, for a variety of reasons it was not. mainly because of the anti-immigration rhetoric that was doled out by the standard bear. mitt romney all through 2012. can this reverse that course? >> oh, it sure can. we learned a lesson. i think this is a great first step. the framework for this plan being that it's a good consensus of republicans and democrats. it's a great start. i think victoria hit on it. senator rubio also hit on it. fairness is critical in this. the framers of this immigration plan say this is tough, but it's fair. that's important. those that have been going about obtaining citizenship through the legal means should be front of the line and those who have not should go to the back of the line. i think there's also an i
